Shadow Dancing

shadow boxing
tap dancing
shadow dancing

slow romancing
in the mind

can only be done
if you're kind

kind of mind
one of a kind
kind of shadow dancing
mind the kind
of shadow dancing
done

step step to
step step fro
step side
side step
one of a kind
if you've the mind

in my mind
I find you kind
to shadow dance
with me
making a we
of us

you're not here
step step forth
step step back
just a shadow
a body you lack

the music plays
slow and low
you're sleeping
overhead
you've never understood
the dread
I have in
losing the dance
slow romance

slowed by chance?
circumstance?
happenstance?

just knowing that
it did
lifts the lid
on questions asked
but thoughts are masked
taken to task
can't relax

shadow dancing
kind in mind
moving slow
turn and twirl
thoughts to swirl
dip and curl
and bend
and wend away
my thoughts

chance was bought
with life of line
thought of mind
mind in kind
once

ten cents a dance
slow romance
sixty years ago
taking it slow
now shadow dancing
is the way to go
slow romance
take a chance
God if I could go back
to ten cents a dance
real romance
my kind of mind

shadow dancing
one more time

this sends my mind on several trips from my memories...experiences experienced vicariously.

Wonderful title and wonderful render...loved the whole idea it spoke over time to the present....ethome

The poet is like a cocoon; in him the caterpillar of the past finds rest, and from him the butterfly of the future emerges.
